GOAL! Sounders Score Win Over LA Galaxy

By TIM BOOTH AP
Sports Writer

SEATTLE - Eddie Johnson scored for the second straight game, directing home a header just before halftime, Fredy Montero scored his first goal of the season on a 35-yard strike early in the second half, and the Seattle Sounders finally got the best of Los Angeles with a 2-0 win over the Galaxy on Wednesday night.

Johnson's goal in the 40th minute capped a half of missed chances for Seattle and came off a long cross from Mauro Rosales.

It snapped a long scoreless skid for Seattle at home against the Galaxy and led to the Sounders' first win over Los Angeles in MLS play since 2009.

Montero's goal was a stunning strike from distance in the 48th minute. Given space in the midfield, Montero drive found the opposite upper corner out of the reach of Los Angeles goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.
